Ron Paul: Why is he running again?

April 26, 2011
posted by

The Christian Science Monitor    

"Ron Paul is in. That’s the word from the libertarian-leaning Republican congressman from Texas, who said on Fox News Monday night that he plans to announce his presidential exploratory committee Tuesday afternoon in Iowa. Representative Paul suggested that he may not go beyond the exploratory phase. ... But at this point, not running hardly seems in the cards, even for a man in his mid-70s. Paul knows he has a fervent base of supporters. Major polls place him far down in the pack of prospective 2012 candidates, but his fans are a hardy bunch, many of them young." (04/26/11)

Trump is a laughing matter

"Sarah Palin left public life under very odd circumstances and is now best known for a daughter who dressed up like a monkey on Dancing With the Stars. Ron Paul is a sitting U.S. congressman whose son was recently elected to the Senate. Yet to go by the news mentions, Palin is the more serious Republican candidate. That’s what the media will do when you give them no reason to take you seriously." (04/15/11)

Ron Paul should stand aside for Gary Johnson

Uncovered Politics Uncovered Politics
by Austin F. Cassidy  

"A second bid for the White House by Ron Paul would tie up money and grassroots resources that could be far more effectively used by another candidate with a similar message. I’m speaking, of course, about former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson. If both men run, they will split an already small slice of votes and neither will be able to make a significant dent in the discussion." (04/03/11)

Obama begins reelection campaign

"After finishing the third term of George W. Bush, Obama is about to begin his campaign for a fourth. As you might expect I am utterly and totally opposed to this malignant little man being reimposed on the American people. And I oppose him for exactly the same reasons that I thought Georgie Junior was such a disaster. The policy differences between Obama and Bush are insignificant and minor." (04/04/11)

Ron Paul gets it wrong on DOMA

February 28, 2011
posted by

United Liberty
by Doug Mataconis  

"[I]f Paul supports Section Three of DOMA then he essentially believes that it is okay for the government to discriminate against homosexuals just because they are homosexuals. That is not a libertarian position in any sense of the word, and it’s disappointing to see the Congressman make it. The reality, of course, is that all of DOMA is unconstitutional, including Section Two’s Full Faith And Credit provisions." (02/28/11)

The true colors of Ron Paul

posted by

Classically Liberal
by CLS  

"The one thing Ron Paul wants from libertarians are campaign contributions. But he is not one of us. He is a paleo-conservative. He is not a libertarian. He has never been a libertarian. He is libertarian on some issues, but then even Obama is libertarian on some issues: DOMA being one of them. The one thing Ronnie wants from libertarians is their money, not their principles."

Ron Paul: Extortionist

Militant Libertarian
by George Donnelly  

"At the recent conservative CPAC conference, Ron Paul made an offer. Opt out of government, agree to take care of yourself and in return the government will only take 10 per cent of your earnings. As you can see in the above video, this offer met with some applause. Allow me to make a counter-offer, because I have as much authority as Ron Paul to make offers like that." (02/17/11)

Ron Paul The American Spectator
by W. James Antle III  

"When it comes to the substance of his positions on the Patriot Act, the Iraq war, and foreign aid to Israel, Rand Paul is still his father's son. But just as in his CPAC speech, he is trying to speak in tones less jarring to Republican ears, bringing his father's supporters and more traditional conservatives together." (02/14/11)

Ron Paul wins CPAC straw poll

Politico    

"Texas Rep. Ron Paul won the CPAC straw poll Saturday, taking 30 percent of the vote in a huge and divided field for his second victory in as many years. In second place was former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who took 23 percent of the vote. ... After Paul and Romney, no candidate received more than 6 percent of the vote. Former New Mexico Gary Johnson and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie both hit that mark, tying for third place." (02/12/11)

Ron Paul Campaign For Liberty
by US Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX)  

"I am pleased that I will be chairing the Monetary Policy Subcommittee of the Financial Services Committee, which has oversight of the Federal Reserve. Obviously, this position will facilitate my efforts to ensure the Fed provides the American people with more information about what they have been doing with and to our money. Not surprisingly, since my chairmanship was announced, apologists for the Fed have been recycling the old canard about how increased transparency threatens the Fed's so-called political independence."

"Is it possible to replace a private banking cartel as the issuer of money? Career politicians spend trillions of Federal Reserve Notes that accrue interest payments upon the very creation of money.

Who is Ron Paul?

Ron Paul National Review
by Matthew Shaffer  

"Ron Paul speaks softly and carries Mises. The eccentric, famous, and infamous Texas congressman has a frail frame and a frailer voice. 'I am not powerful, but my ideas are powerful,' he says. Everybody knows his name. Everybody talks about him. But nobody can agree as to who he is." (12/28/10)

The smearing of Ron Paul

Ron Paul LewRockwell.Com
by William L. Anderson  

"When the Republicans retook the U.S. House of Representatives last November, it meant that Ron Paul would be in line to chair the subcommittee that oversees the Federal Reserve System. Despite the intense lobbying by Ben Bernanke and others who loathed the prospect of Rep. Paul being able to subpoena them to appear before Congress and then to ask them pointed questions about their secret operations, the Republican leadership still gave Rep. Paul his rightful position. Obviously, the Usual Suspects on the Right and the Left are not happy ..." (12/21/10)
